Joss Whedon Tapped To Direct Batgirl Film


Joss Whedon is set to direct a standalone film for Batgirl sources have revealed.

If the deal is confirmed it means that Whedon would be crossing the Marvel/DC divide after a long history of working on Marvel projects. Whedon would write, direct and produce what would be the second female fronted DC film after the upcoming Wonder Woman which hits theatres on June 2, 2017.

Batgirl first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!” by writer Gardner Fox and artist Carmine Infantino.
